Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark is writing sweet, yet deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust. What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life. Besides being a romance novel author, she works as a self-employed German web content writer, as a translator, and as a faithful servant to all the cats, dogs, fish and birds in her home. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or thinking about writing.

I chose to read this novel because when I read the preview, the topic seemed rather interesting. It was not only about love, but about a woman who suffered from domestic violence and is trying to start a new life. I'm very interested on this issue myself, so I try to read everything that is available. I must say I was not disappointed.
The novel It is well written and connected, so it flows without any odd interruption. Its length, around 110 pages, is perfect if you want to read a story that goes directly to the point, and does not waste time in unnecessary facts. The main characters are well constructed even though they are part of a short story (one of the supporting ones is adorable, must say).
Although it is a romance novel, it does not rely on erotism or touchy-feely moments. As the main character is struggling something as hard as having had an abusive husband, the author was careful enough to not play down with such matter.
I will recommend this novel to anyone who wants to read something entertaining and meaningful, and in a very short time. Its best company is a cup of hot tea.
